Why I gave up on “What They Want By Omar Tyree”

In Plinky Promps on August 15, 2010 at 10:17 pm

Name a book you started reading but never finished. Why did you stop? What would it take for you to finish it?

this is what the back cover says: “Successful model Terrance Mitchell had no plans to ever settle down. For what? Being single was freedom, where relationships were binding. Nor did he have any plans for a family, with snotty-nosed kids running around, cramping his style and eating for free. To hell with all that. Terrance loved his life as is. He was a well-traveled, good-looking model in an industry full of insatiable and beautiful women. Women who adored him and were willing to do almost anything to prove it. He liked it that way. And he had become accustomed to it. Then it happened. One of his beautiful women fell over the cuckoo’s nest and shattered his peace of mind. From then on, Terrance could never again lead the blind mice with his flute without feeling guilty about it. He realized that women had a purpose for him. They had dreams and aspirations that included his participation. Of course, a man in his position, constantly surrounded by beautiful women, would know this already. But just because he knew what women wanted didn’t mean he was capable of or willing to give it to them. Nevertheless, Terrance suddenly felt inspired to try.”

I stopped readin this book bcuz of my job. i used to read at work alot bcuz i worked in a call center…at the time we had like a 10 break in between calls all day (it was great considering that usually the calls where always back to back all day. but any way the point is with all that free time and them having me on the tech support split i used to read to make my day go faster. well one day they decided to change the type of calls i took. i started just taking calls from the installers (dishnetwork) we still had like 5-8 min between calls but there was no time available durring the call to read cuz u dont really have to tell them how to do things or what stuff means..they’re calling you to activate peoples equipment or to change some ones order cuz the sales rep either fucked it up or jus lied to the person about the equipment so if this has ever happened to u im the person that gets to tell u that u owe like $200 more to get the equipment that you thought u already pay 4 and you get to scream and yell at me for 15 mins and end up canceling ur order and finding sum 1 else lol well….. i used to be that person anyway but back to the point. it then got to the point that they had us taking calls from installers and customers (mixed up through out the shift) so there was no more time in between calls so i stopped reading as much and then i didnt really have the urge to finish it…partly because it was kinda hard to get into… it had the potential to be a good book but i lost interest

what would it take to finish it? hmmmm…. not sure that i want to

Ok, Im Sorry

In Facebook Statuses on August 12, 2010 at 11:04 am

intro…i had to apologize to my friend of 3yrs…..Directv (lol)

yesterday i had a problem with my hddvr it was just stuck on “searching for signal” so i do what comes naturally to me (well natural to me as of the past 3 yrs and way.) i used to work for Dishnetwork as a tech support rep. (yes, i worked for dish but had directv, the funny thing is that some of the $ from my 1st dishnework paycheck went towards my start up costs with directv…lol ) so anyway i start checking things like is it raining? no. do both tvs not work? no, the bedroom dvr is ok. ok so i bring the bedroom dvr to the living room to see if i have a signal problem in my living room…..nope the regular dvr works fine in the livingroom too. so now what? i take the hddvr to the bedroom and guess what it doesnt work there either. so now im pissed bcuz i didnt get to watch some of the shows i recorded like the real word the bad girls club dark blue and some other stuff. and i wouldnt have been so mad about the no signal thing if i could just watch what i had already recorded bcuz at this point im thinkin the this dvr is bad and needs swapped for a new 1 or wutever cuz it dont word in either room but the regular dvr works in both rooms. so i call directv’s tech support and i tell the lady wut i did and that i thought it might be the dvr and it mite need swapped. i told her that if she thinks it mite be sumthin else im up for suggestions im jus making guesses. so she thought it was the dvr but it could possible be somethin else and she wanted to send a tech to my house just to check out everything so im like ok cool no problem so i was kinda mad about having to have sum1 come here and it couldnt be a simple fix but hey shit happens. so i went on facebook yesterday and posted a status about the situation…so today the tech came and figured out what the problem was and then i had to go back to facebook today to post the following :

Tylice Meade

Swear words: Are you pro or con?

In Plinky Promps on August 10, 2010 at 11:37 am

swear words? did they really just ask me this question? do they know who I am? ABSO-FUCKIN-LUTLY! im pro swear words…

i used to think “oh, they’re just words get over it” and in a way i still believe that but they arent meant for every where and everyone…for instance i dont curse in church (not that I go to to church that often but if/when I do… no cursing) school/work? hmm…. I went to a christian school and yes i used to curse up and down those halls….work yea the jobs i had made me want to curse…especially my last job. I did customer service/tech support for dishnetwork and some of the people that used to call there would be on my last nerve! but god gave us the mute button and thats how i kept my job untill my job was outsourced to mexico march2010! yay! gotta love this country. i dont really miss the job i jus miss the $ i will admit they did pay pretty good $ they just treat there employees like dog shit….and their customers too but thats another story.

back to the matter at hand… i dont feel that children shouldnt curse…teens? hmm thats a tricky 1. i have a lil brother who is 19 and a lil sister who is 17 i wouldnt say anything if they cursed cuz i did the same thing @ their age but at the same time if i had a teenage child i wouldnt want them cursing infront of me…. u cant controll what ur children do when you’re not with them, u can only make suggestions.

so to sum this up im pro-cursing but theres a time and a place.
